I am associate senior lecturer at the Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies, Sweden. I have a BSc in International Business Administration from the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany and the Ecole Superieure de Commerce in Montpellier, France; and a MSc in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science from Lund University, Sweden.
From 2009 to 2013 I conducted my PhD research as part of the newly established research school LUCID (http://lucid.lu.se.webbhotell.ldc.lu.se/). I have extensive experience in conducting field work in Chile and the Ecuadorian Amazon on the social and environmental impacts of conservation projects.
My current research focuses on hunting and defaunation in tropical forests, with a focus on the Colombian and Ecuadorian Amazon (financed by the Swedish Science Counsil - Vetenskapsrådet).
Also, I am involved in a EU FP7 project (http://www.operas-project.eu/) where I study the governance of ecosystem services in a European context. Other research interests include agroforestry and the use of new agroforestry tree products and how these can support small-scale and local indigenous farmers in maintaining their agroforestry practices for a more sustainable forest management in Latin America.
